Hello there Reader.

 

I was writing the other day about having fully recharged hobby batteries for 2014, but I had been beating around the bush when it came to sitting down and actually painting something, even if I had been assembling and priming stuff i’ll be working on soon.

 

It turns out we had the “Carnaval” holiday here in Brazil a couple of weekends ago.

Hey there Reader.

 

It’s been a good while since I’ve written a proper painting tutorial in order to share with you guys here on the blog.

 

I believe that in order to improve our painting skills we should strive to leave our comfort zone whenever possible and there’s this technique I had wanted to try for a long time called “Salt Weathering” which, to sum up, consists of using your every day kitchen salt to as a mask when painting, but that, thus far, I hadn’t found an opportunity to try.

 

The nice thing about this technique is that it produces irregular patches which can be really useful to simulate paint wearing off from surfaces. Given that I wanted to go with a weathered look for my Outpost Kit (reviewed here the other day) I decided it was time to give the technique a try.
